seat testifying about the deadly terrorist attack on the u.s. in benghazi. >> with all due respect the fact is we have four dead americans, was it because of a protest or guys out for a walk and decided they'd go kill some americans? >> reporter: what difference at that point does it make? >> ground-breaking mission in washington, the pentagon is set to end its ban on women in active combat missions. >> women have been fighting and dying in combat have proven they're fully capable of doing this. apple shares fell 10% thursday, that's a loss of about $50 million. prince harry back on british oil after deployment in afghanistan. >> i'm looking to catch up with people behind closed doors. you guys aren't invited. all that -- >> the miami hurricanes destroyed and took down duke. inexcusable, indefensible downright extraordinary.

7:02 am
terrell, good morning. >> reporter: charlie, norah, good morning to you. it is in the low teens in central park. the temperature is one issue as we stand out here, though we can feel the winds start to pick up just a bit and that is the key thing, windchills are expected to be below zero in some areas today. this cold weather is here it will likely last through the weekend, and the worst of it could be today. >> it's very very cold. >> reporter: all day, new yorkers bundled up against windchill temps that ranged from single digits to below zero. >> i was kind of cold but i don't care i'm outside and i got to make money i got to go home and make sure i feed everybody. >> reporter: in fact it's so cold, you can see it. in midtown's bryant park the centerpiece fountain marved into a strangely beautiful ice sculpture. and for those who work outdoors the cold commute is only the beginning. kelmy rodriguez works as an emt. that means even in the extreme
7:03 am
cold when the call comes in he heads out. often a dozen times in his eight-hour shift. >> it's cold out here very cold. >> reporter: what's this like for you? >> it's very physical for me right now. i have to work a little harder lift a lot more my hands are starting to beginning to get numb. >> reporter: cold weather how serious is this? >> it's pretty serious. >> reporter: dr. jeffrey raybridge is director of emergency medicine at st. luke's hospital. he says people like rodriguez are particularly at risk because when they're working outside their body temperature may drop dangerously low without them even knowing it. >> the body starts to trick your mind and you may feel like i'm feeling warmer now, not shivering anymore but you're already beyond the stages of mild hypothermia and into moderate to severe hypothermia and it would be too late. >> reporter: as we stand out in central park we couldn't help but notice the many people that couldn't resist taking that morning jog. we talked to a few doctors yesterday that said that's not
7:04 am
the best idea when you sweat in these frigid temperatures you get colder faster. charlie, norah? >> all right, terrell brown, thank you. and now to the long-awaited confrontation between congress and secretary of state hillary clinton after a one-month delay because of illness, clinton panelly testified yesterday about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya. she was feisty and emotional and so were her republican critics. margaret brennan is on capitol hill. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. it was the first time that secretary clinton testified to lawmakers about the events in benghazi last september 11th, and she fiercely defended the office that she will soon be leaving. >> that sounds good good way to start. >> reporter: in over five hours of testimony, secretary clinton acknowledged failures in security and took ownership of the state department's handling of the attack. >> i take responsibility and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country
7:05 am
safer, stronger and more secure. >> reporter: clinton said she had a personal relationship with ambassador chris stevens and grew emotional talking about him and three other victims. >> i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> reporter: but the secretary told members of the house that she never saw stevens' request for more security. at one point -- >> 4.3 million cables come to the state department addressed to me, they do not call that to me. >> reporter: republican rand paul called that a failure of leadership. >> if i had been president at the time and found out you did not read the cables of benghazi and from ambassador stevens i would have relieved you from your post.
7:06 am
>> reporter: they were accused of covering up the nature of at tacks. >> we were led there were protests and something sprang out of that and assault sprang out of that and that was easily ascertained that was not the fact. >> but you know -- >> reporter: the american people could have known that within days. >> with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans, was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? >> reporter: many lawmakers praised clinton for her years of public service and testimony. senator john mccain a vocal critic of the obama's administration's response to the attack said clinton's answers left him unsatisfied. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda in mali and the recent terror attack in algeria. right now she's making what may be her final appearance on capitol hill introducing john
7:07 am
kerry at his confirmation hearing. he is likely to be asked how he would handle those threats as the next secretary of state. >> margaret brennan thank you. "washington post" columnist david ignatius had written extensively about the engazie attacks. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> we begin with the questions, whether secretary of state took responsibility, answered all the questions and put this behind her? >> she gave a good account of herself, she gave as good as she got. it was an intense session. i think on the sound bite that we'll remember secretary clinton asking what difference does it make? knowing exactly how this happened. i think it does make a difference, and the reason is it's clear in hindsight the united states simply didn't know enough about what was happening in benghazi on the day that these four americans were killed. the intelligence wasn't good the diplomatic security wasn't good, efforts to fix it had failed, and in that sense, secretary clinton is taking responsibility but there is a
7:08 am
deep obligation in the department to do it better. so i think that issue will persist, it's got to be fixed. >> the secretary of state shall take responsibility, not only that, she will make sure that the recommendations are enacted, and that there are four people suspended if not fired. >> i think at today's state department anybody who tries to short-cut security issues is going to be in trouble. i think the state department in the aftermath of this report and the political firestorm that surrounded it is going to be a different place. i think the issue, charlie, is there's a new normal. secretary clinton was hinting at it. we live in a world now a very diffused dispersed al qaeda in which a lot of the diplomatic facilities we assumed local authorities can protect them are now vulnerable. what is the united states going to do about them? are we going to be able to keep a consulate open in ja lal bad in afghanistan or kandahar? other places where we're used to
7:09 am
have a diplomatic presence but may not be able to protect them. yesterday's hearing was intense. >> it was intense and we saw the intense exchange who said "i think she decided before she was going to describe emotionally the four dead americans, the heroes and use that as her trump card to get out of the questions." why that deep conflict there? >> you know norah that's an after the fact attempt really to belittle a secretary, watching her testimony, i thought those responses were genuine, and not calculated. the very emotion in her words it would be hard to invent that. the republicans may look into the future want to set down a marker and say to the most likely democratic candidate in 2016 we're going to come after you. she showed today that she's going to be a tough opponent when she gets attacked.
7:10 am
>> david ignatius good to see you. thanks so much. >> thanks norah. defense secretary leon panetta is announcing an historic policy shift today allowing women to serve in all combat areas for soldiers like army captain don halfacre who lost an arm in iraq. the numbers reflect the true situation on the ground. >> i was on the front lines every day for five months and i had 33 people's lives in my hands, and you know my job was to do the absolute best job to accomplish our mission, to protect my folks and i never once doubted sending a female on a mission or you know giving them a certain set of responsibilities ever. >> critics say the change could weaken the front line forces. with us retired general richard mire, a cbs news senior military security analyst, general, good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> this is a watershed moment
7:11 am
for the u.s. military and for our country. how do you think things will change? >> well i think what we're going to see is a process where the services have to come back i think by may to talk about what positions that have previously been denied to women which of those will be opened up so i think we're going to see a process, and then they have until 2016 to implement it so i think we're at the beginning of a process to determine what positions should be opened to women and which i think by the way is a continuation of a process that started a long time ago, decades ago to integrate women into more functions in our military. >> i'm glad you mentioned that general. i want to show everyone the numbers. already we have 73,000 active duty women, more than 130 were killed in action in iraq and afghanistan. lot of women who have served say this ban on women in combat
7:12 am
positions is pretty much a legal fiction already. >> i think it is particularly when you don't have front lines and the conflict with you know global jihad, iraq afghanistan, there are no front lines. in your last piece, the embassy is not -- anybody can be on the front line and so women are fighting they're dying, and they've shown they have great skills so as the services look at this i think the one thing that they'll probably look at is not changing training standards to accommodate women. when we brought women fighter pilots into the air force, we didn't change our training standards and women are totally accepted as part of the crew force in bombers and fighters and so forth. >> is this connected to the experience of women in iraq and afghanistan? >> i think so and i think one of the complaints that i've i'm aware of while they're not
7:13 am
serving in combat-related jobs, they're in combat and they don't get recognition for that. >> and performing brilliantly. >> and for performing brilliantly, let's allow them to get the recognition in order for what they're doing. >> your daughter could grow up to be chairwoman of the joint chiefs of staff? >> my daughters are probably a little bit old but yes, i think that's the potential. >> exactly. >> they've watched me i don't think they'd want to do that yes, that's the potential. it will take a time to build. it takes from a lieutenant to become chairman it's a 35 or 36-year deal so this will take some time but i think charlie you're absolutely right. >> general myers as always thank you so much. >> thank you. new york city's controversial plan to limit the size of sugary drinks has hit an unexpected new roadblock. two major civil rights groups have gone to court to stop it.
7:14 am
jeff glor is here with the story. >> not many were surprised to see the american beverage association oppose this limit on sugary drinks but some were surprised when the hispanic federation and the naacp joined. the obesity epidemic is most acute in african-american and hispanic neighborhoods. the naacp told us they're doing this not because of race but because of economic fairness. new york city mayor michael bloomberg's plan approved by the board of health in september would put a 16 ounce limit on sugary drinks sold at restaurants, sports games, street carts and movie theaters. it's just one of his responses to the city's 24% obesity rate which result in $4.7 billion in annual health care cost 60% of which is paid by the city. >> our administration refuses to stand on the sidelines while millions of our fellow new yorkans struggle with the health implications of being overweight or obese. >> reporter: but the naacp says the mayor's approach is not right. >> the mayor sometimes decides
7:15 am
that an issue that is important to him should just be this way ahis way or no way. >> the impression is you could be on the side of coca-cola and the american beverage association here. is that right? >> people can say what they want to. we are on the side of fairness. >> the lawsuit contends the sugary drink ban is unfair because it exempts supermarkets in many convenience stores while including most local neighborhood shops. why do you think the big chains are left out? >> they have political power. >> the city's health commissioner would not comment on camera but did give cbs news this statement saying "the obesity crisis calls for bold action. this regulation will help those suffering from obesity and its health effects including members of minority groups who are disproportionately affected."
7:16 am
but the naacp says if the city really wants to help it would start by joining them at the table. is the mayor talking to you about all this? >> no. >> reporter: do you want him to? >> yes. >> the ban f it goes into effect on schedule would start on march 12th and could result in $200 fines for anyone not following the rules. charlie, norah? >> very interesting to see what happens there. jeff glor thank you. apple is down again this morning after investors were disappointed by the latest profit numbers. apple missed wall street's forecast for the third straight quarter, so shares fell by more than 10% in afterhours trading, a loss of about $50 billion. the company posted a profit of $13 billion, selling 28% more iphones and 48% more ipads, but that still didn't meet expectations, and analysts say apple needs new products. it is time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. the "new york times" reports democratic senators led by

everybody, to "cbs this morning." >> wow. a north carolina woman injured during a wild shoot-out in the airport of manhattan is suing the police department. as michelle miller reports, the lawsuit charges the police were grossly negligent. >> i was just crossing the street. i wasn't doing anything wrong, and quickly life changed. >> reporter: last summer's shooting oust side the empire state building still haunts 32-year-old chenin duclos. she was one of nine by staernds wounded by police gunfire in broad daylight on one of the
7:30 am
city's busiest streets. the officers were targeting a man who had just shot and killed his coworker nearby. duclo was hit in the hip. she's now seeking specified damages from the city. her lawsuit charges that the officers failed to follow and exercise proper police tac and procedures and that they escalated the situation into a dangerous and deadly confrontation. >> i feel bad they were in that situation, too that they have to make those choices so quickly and rapidly, but we count on them for that. >> reporter: wednesday, new york city police commissioner ray kelly responded to the lawsuit. >> it's certainly unfortunate this this woman and other people were struck but i don't see any reason for recourse. >> reporter: amy marion is one of duclos' attorneys. >> they didn't say let us know what you need help with medical
7:31 am
bills, anything, we'll assist you. none of that was done. >> reporter: duclos is now undergoing therapy on a weekly basis. >> there needs to be some change. hopefully it doesn't happen again. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," michelle miller new york. senior correspondent john mill eric former nypd ben tut commissioner is here along with rickey rick rikki klieman. the complaint charges that these officers failed to follow proper tactics. how do you see it? >> i think the way i see it, the way anybody in the new york city police department would see it the way the highest court in new york state would see it and they've gone on record saying a police officer reacting making split-second decisions, for instance, when somebody murders somebody on the street as in this case and then pulls out a gun and points it and attempts to fire the gun at that officers, when they're making
7:32 am
those split second decisions, it's very hard if not totally unfair to try to second-guess that with the would a, could aa, coulda, shoulda might have done. >> rikki, how do you see it? >> i think you can see both sides. i think the side john advocates which is the side my husband would advocate is, look these police officers did the right thing under the right circumstances. circumstances were very stressful. on the other hand this is a well written, well thought out complaint by a very good lawyer who has a history of looking at civil rights violations on the part of police officers and corrections officers. she says these police officers did 19 separate acts of negligence, and then she says that their training had 16 points that were also negligent. so this is not just some let's say the police are negligent. she's going to show how they
7:33 am
were negligent. ultimately this case will settle. >> we are in complete conflict although we're still best friends. >> and you work for her husband. >> that's true. >> let me challenge you on that. >> sure. >> as rikki points out, this is a pretty good complaint. they've got a good lawyer and this suit talks about the rand program. it says the plievs were not trained in the recommended way, using more tasers. why hasn't the nypd recognized that? >> i think someone who use as taser on you after someone's murdered someone on the street is like bringing a knife to a gun fight. the rand corporation lives out on a lovely beach where they can think big thoughts with big money. the fact is when you're on the streets and somebody's pulled a weapon on you, you've been 104
7:34 am
hours in the academy, firearms training, 64 of those tactics alone. >> you don't have any sympathy for the victims? >> we have to separate them. we need to help her by giving damage but to get there by claiming gross negligence on the part of two police officers confronted by a man with a gun. >> how the police respond and how much time they had to ter what is the appropriate training and i guarantee you that this lawyer is going to find a good kpertd to say that in light of the rand corporation study that the training should have been changed. remember this these two officers, who are not bad
7:35 am
people, who are not bad guys who really did a good thing by killing the shooter, ultimately these two officers are from the 416th precinct from the bronx. they may react faster, the plaintiff says when they're doing a detail around the empire state building. they're used to a different kind of workplace. >> i think when you have a complaint, the challenge is the training. you have to look at the bigger picture, which is the statistics show that new york city police officers fire their weapons less than any other police department in any other major city statistically. the statistics also show when new york city police officers fire their weapons, they fire their weapons fewer tombs in each incident. >> one last point. she suggested a settlement should happen in the case? >> i think it should have happened in the first 950 days. the city should have stepped up and done the right thing rather than put these cops in this position. >> thanks you, john thank you, rikki. making hay over stealing

america's farmers and ranchers have a long history with dealing with cattle rustling, but now they're losing another staple hay. why something so common has become a target of criminals. >> reporter: every day texas farmer james lockridge puts out a hundred bales of hay to feed
7:41 am
his 3,000 cows. the drought has made that a challenge. >> we don't have any grass, and it's getting dryer. there's nothing but dirt here so if the cow can't get a hay build to eat, they're going to literally go out there and starve too death. >> reporter: hay is a precious commodity for farmers to feed their own cattle and thieves looking to make a quick buck. over the last year lockridge says he's had 200 bale of hay stolen, a $100,000 loss. it goes beyond lockridge's land. in several states the drought has scorched grass creating a hay shortage and driving up prices. figures from the u.s. department of agriculture shows the price of hay has nearly doubled in the last two years. hay production is at its lowest level since 1964 and hay brokers like tom baer in colorado struggle to meet
7:42 am
demand. >> we get a lot of rain this spring if we get good moisture the hay situation could turn around just immediately. if we don't, it could be a real severe crisis. >> reporter: making problem worse, it's difficult to catch the crooks. one reason it's hard to track athieves is that one hay bale looks just like the rest. so one sheriff in oklahoma came up with a unique solution. for tillman county sheriff bobby whittington, it was more than finding the proverbial needle. it was finding the hay stack itself. >> reporter: this is what you put into that. >> yes, this whole case. >> reporter: he placed this tracking unit into a bale of hay. he got a hit and caught two men. >> whenever a citizen has something stolen from them that they worked hard to earn and get and somebody steals it i'll follow the trail to hell and back to try to gettet back for my citizens.
7:43 am
>> reporter: he says he hasn't seen any reports of stolen hay since the arrests. however, lockridge hasn't had any success keeping thieves yet but he's working with local police to change that. >> i'm ready. i want theps to understand you mess with my livelihood i'm going to mess with yours. manuel bojorquez, dallas. this is what find with farming. you're subject to it. >> i grew up in texas. you mess with the bull you get the horn. there you go. >> that's
